Darling Diva Polish Call the Doctor and Denim Mitten

Doing a bit of a "pink and blue" theme today with these two awesome Darling Diva Polish glitters, Call the Doctor and Denim Mitten!

Darling Diva Call the Doctor over China Glaze Fancy Pants

Call the Doctor is jam-packed with prismatic circle-y goodness! It's a mix of small to large black, white, pink, and fuchsia circles and holographic silver micro-glitter in a slightly pink-tinted base. This is such a great color combo that looks good over tons of different polishes, I love it!

Indigo Bananas Alcatraz and Cake or Death

I'm so excited to share these amazing new holos that Indigo Bananas sent to me! Part of the "Executive Holos" collection, which was inspired by Eddie Izzard's "Dress to Kill," here are Alcatraz and Cake or Death!

Alcatraz, (once an island paradise, now a penitentiary) is a beautiful and SUPER holographic muted seafoam blue with subtle purple flecks. I absolutely love this color! Dusty turquoise is one of my favorite shades, and the incredible holo effect with hints of of lavender make Alcatraz truly one of a kind.

Different Dimension: Excelsior, Yours Mine and Flowers, and Squarey Hexey

Random swatches of a few more polishes I received from Different Dimension today! Here is the holographic Excelsior, pretty pastel Yours, Mine, and Flowers, and very sparkly Squarey Hexey.

Different Dimension Excelsior
Excelsior is a white-leaning-grey subtle holographic polish with multi-colored shimmer that give it a touch of sparkle and texture. I really love the balance of the holo effect with the color-- it isn't metallic-looking, and the white/grey is very soft and flattering. Plus the colorful flecks make it even more interesting and unique!

Different Dimension: Orion Nebula and Doppelgänger

More beautiful polishes (purchased or sent for review) from Different Dimension! Take a look at these two gorgeous glitters, Orion Nebula and Doppelgänger.

Different Dimension Orion Nebula over Revlon Black Lingerie

Orion Nebula contains different-sized fuchsia circle glitters in a semi-opaque black jelly base. The large circles are holographic, and absolutely stunning! The fuchsia and holo glitter contrasting against the black really give Orion Nebula a likeness to this incredible interstellar formation.

Darling Diva: New Glow-in-the-Dark Polishes!

Today I have even more new polishes from Darling Diva, three awesome glow-in-the-dark glitters!

Darling Diva Firefly over Zoya Frida
Firefly might just be my favorite of the three; it's a sheer lime-green jelly packed with holographic teal, blue/purple and green/orange iridescents, and holographic micro glitter, along with tiny blue/green iridescent flecks that are just magical! The formula was excellent, and application was smooth and effortless. (Are you humming the Ballad of Serenity yet?)

Darling Diva Material Girl & Lucky Star

Grab your leg-warmers and hairspray and get ready go totally 80's! Today I have two of the new Madonna-inspired glitter polishes sent from Darling Diva, Material Girl and Lucky Star.

Darling Diva Material Girl

Material Girl is a slightly shimmery bubblegum-pink jelly filled with micro to large silver holographic glitter, as well as small and medium fuchsia circles. The jelly is the perfect consistency:  just a bit sheer with two coats, and mostly opaque in three, as pictured here. The amount of glitter allowed it to build very well and still look smooth and sparkly (not a mass of lumpy glitter!). The larger glitters required a bit of fishing/dabbing, as per usual.

Different Dimension: Set it Free

Today I have three gorgeous scattered holographic polishes that I picked up/was sent by Different Dimension, the "Set it Free" collection. These polishes can be worn alone or layered over another color. Here I have them pictured on their own, and aren't they lovely?

Different Dimension Black Dahlia

Are there any Jrock fans out there? The first thing that comes to my mind with this polish is X Japan's song "Dahlia"-- ahh, sweet memories of visual kei! Black Dahlia is a beautiful charcoal grey scattered holograhpic polish packed with blue-purple iridescent glitters, and has a subtle fuchsia/purple shimmer that complements it perfectly. This one is my favorite of the three-- I just love how the iridescent glitters pop out against the dark grey!

Indigo Bananas Anansi and Eshu

Are you ready to go bananas?! Are you getting tired of my terrible puns yet? No? Excellent! Today I have two more gorgeous multichromes I bought from Indigo Bananas, Anansi and Eshu.

Indigo Bananas Anansi

Anansi is a beautifully intense emerald glass fleck that shifts to a stunning violet, and even magenta at extreme angles. I love the incredible vibrancy of this color! It's so rich and jewel-like. This polish was named after the African god, Anansi, who is known as a cunning trickster that often takes the form of a spider. It reminds me of Peacock Spiders with their flashy little bums!

KBShimmer Summer 2013 Collection

KBShimmer's Summer Collection came out today. Check out these fantastic and fun new colors!


KBShimmer is excited to announce the addition of 9 new colors to their 3-Free glitter polish line and an expansion to their nail prep line.  Owner Christy Rose says “With warm weather and sandals popping up, June is the perfect time for bright, bold colors and patriotic themes to celebrate a fun and exciting summer.”

The summer lineup includes one glitter top coat, two glitter crellys in a white base and six bright, bold polishes, two in a matte finish.  KBShimmer will also be expanding their nail care line to include two scented cuticle oils and liquid nail prep. “Our new line was created to play off the bolder palette of summer, some inspired by the 80’s and 90s, but also to celebrate the patriotic season. One of our polishes plays off the color of the year, Emerald Green, and will ease people into the summer while two others were inspired by the fall 2013 Pantone colors Koi and Vivacious. Both will make for an easy transition through the summer and into the fall.  We are also excited to unveil two scented cuticle oils in an easy-applicator pen.  We hope to inspire and motivate people to go out in the sun and show off their nails!” says Rose.
